Color Vision

Accepting Submissions: 1 September 2013
Submission Deadline: 1 October 2013

The scope of the special issue will span basic-science and applied approaches to the study of color vision, including perception and psychophysics, physiology and anatomy, functional imaging, genetics, and color-vision deficiencies.

Contributions to the conference reflect the diversity of interests of the members of the ICVS, who include physiologists, psychologists, physicists, engineers, geneticists, optometrists, ophthalmologists and other related professionals with interests in color vision and color-vision deficiencies.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Color Vision and Aging
  • Rod-Cone Interaction
  • Color Vision Deficiencies
  • Color and Cone Function
  • Color Applications
  • Color in the Periphery
  • Color in Context
  • Color Mechanisms
  • Color Induction and Constancy
  • Ecology of Color Vision
  • Physiological Processes of Color Vision
